Dogs at Earth Trust
Earth Trust is a great place to bring your dog, and they are welcome to join you in many areas. For more information visit Dogs at Earth Trust.
We want you to have the best possible – and natural – experience, so here are a few tips to help keep you and your family safe:
- Please remember, that when visiting a working farm like ours, there are inherent risks ranging from uneven ground and steep slopes to working tractors and deep water. Children and vulnerable adults must be supervised at all times.
- Please observe and following signs/notices and stick to footpaths across the site.
- Be aware of the environment you’re in and act accordingly e.g. wearing appropriate clothing for the weather conditions, taking extra care when walking on a slippery surface.
- Avoid wooded areas such as Little Wittenham Wood in high winds (over 30mph) as even healthy trees can fall or lose limbs in these conditions.
Responsible foraging can be a way to meaningfully connect with the natural environment. However, as environmental stewards, we also recognise the need to ensure the sustainability of native plant and fungal species. Foraging is only permitted on Earth Trust land as part of a supervised course with approved partners, or if advance permission has been sought and granted directly from Earth Trust.
Please be aware that the use of drones is not permitted on any of green spaces. If you wish to film you will need permission and the relevant paperwork. Please see our drone policy for more information.
Thank you for helping us look after the beautiful spaces that we all love and cherish.
